Published in five volumes, Flora Europaea is the definitive account of the flowering plants, ferns and fern- allies of Europe. This new edition of Volume 1 brings the treatment of the first 79 families up to date. Keys and descriptions have been extensively revised, and many taxa new to Europe, or to science, have been incorporated, whilst others have been relegated to synonymy. In this new edition, all synonyms are cited in the text. The Appendices have been thoroughly revised, and information on geographical distribution critically edited to give an authoritative summary of species occurrence throughout Europe.
